Seeking God Through Grace

Hebrews 4:14-16                   January 31, 2016                   Link for audio/video/manuscript

To be chosen by God is an empowerment of God’s grace that is a blessing beyond compare. We experience the blessings of God his saving grace and his sanctifying grace and his suffering grace. T0he heart of the meaning of God's grace culminates in the cross of Jesus Christ. In one single act of violent grace, Jesus sacrificed his life so that we might keep ours forever. The picture of a dying Savior pleading for mercy and forgiveness for his murderers reveals to us the true depth of God's grace. In the midst of our deepest struggles, when all seems lost in despair, Jesus is there pleading our case. The power of the cross has no equal; the grace of God IS Jesus Christ, Lord and Savior.
